Manta Ray Carbon

  • $ 179.95 MSRP

Manta Ray Carbon Description

With its beefy blade, the Manta Ray Carbon is a great choice for high-angle paddlers, those looking for more power, bigger boats, and moving water. This power is balanced out with an ovalized, 100% carbon composite shaft, which means less fatigue and joint strain. The Manta Ray Carbon has two ferrule options. In addition to a snug 3-hole snap-button ferrule (0° to 60°, L and R feathering angles), this paddle also offers the Posi-Lok® ferrule system which clicks into position firmly and securely. The Posi-Lok® features strong, corrosion-free composite construction, convenient dual-button release, and infinite feathering angles.

Really nice paddle. Very...

Really nice paddle. Very smooth assembly and I love the ribbed shaft.

I had a non carbon Aqua...

I had a non carbon Aqua Bound Manta Ray paddle for 5 years and was my first paddle so when I wanted something lighter overall I looked to Aqua Bound again since I had nothing but good results with my original Manta Ray paddle. My new carbon version Manta Ray with the posi-loc ferule setup arrived and immediately felt a huge difference in weight at 29.50 oz. (250cm version to use on my Kaku Wahoo 12.5 SOT). I really like the posi-loc ferule as locks the 2 paddle halves together tightly and zero twist, flex or any looseness at all. I have used the paddle a few times and I really like the overall feel and performance of of my Manta Ray Carbon with posi-loc.

This is my first CF paddle...

This is my first CF paddle and what a treat. The paddle is not only much lighter, but the grip and feel of the shaft is excellent. The posi-lok joint offers a nice adjustable and secure joint. I got a longer length (240cm) for use with a sit on top and in my canoe. After using it for a season I purchased a second one for use in our tandems. Now no one gets "stuck" with the heavy paddle.
